I went this afternoon to the gun show at Dulles Expo Center. I had a two-fold mission; 1) to get an M1 carbine belonging to a BR appraised, and 2) to get about 300 rounds of 5.56 NATO, with a preference for a South African milsurp battlepack, in prep for the FPF Training Minuteman Rifle Course in April. I was successful on both counts (appraisal done by one of Tango Seven-Six’s BRs, and I got the ammo for $100, not bad at all).
Other than that, here’s what I saw:
- BRUTAL COLD, especially with the wind
- Huge crowds, parking was a nightmare
- Good selection throughout, with brisk commerce going on
- Cash is king
I spent less than I budgeted, even, and so squirreled the excess away for the next gun show. 🙂
Folks, now is the time to acquire– arms, ammunition, magazines, parts, optics, cases, training.
